Obama seeks $3.7 billion to deal with border kids

Published: Tue, July 8, 2014 @ 1:51 p.m.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Tackling what he has called a humanitarian crisis, President Barack Obama today asked Congress for $3.7 billion to cope with a tide of minors from Central America who are illegally crossing the U.S. border, straining immigration resources and causing a political firestorm in Washington. The White House said the money would help increase the detention, care and transportation of unaccompanied children, help speed the removal of adults with children by increasing the capacity of immigration courts and increase prosecution of smuggling networks. The money would also increase surveillance at the U.S. border and help Central American countries repatriate border-crossers sent back from the United States.

How much of the $3.7 billion would go to ACORN to register the illegals to vote?

Does it really cost $3,700,000,000 of the taxpayers money to put these people on buses and planes to send them back. If Barak Obama wants the money maybe he could ask the countries from which these people came from.

Its time to tell Obammy that until the borders are secure, he's not getting a single dime. It's time to deport each and everyone that is here. If they can walk to here , then they can walk back to where they came from. Why should we pay to transport them back

All the Obamanator has to do is pickup thee phone or use his pen to stop this. But no, he wants these illegals coming into the country to bring the country to it's knees. I hope he gets a r eal dose of Republicans this coming November. They can not be any worse for the country or the rest of the world than this leader who leads from behind.

Send them to D.C. They can put hundreds of tents on the White House lawn. Moochell the cow can share her plentiful bounty from her "Garden" with them. Then the democrat senators can each adopt 2 or 3 of these children.

I remember back in 08, I had a bad feeling about him. He promised so many things to us Americans and followed through with none. In my opinion he is arrogant and stupid, how can one even rate him as a man? He was elected to the most powerful position in the world and has failed miserably. I would bet money he cares more about his next vacation then he does about America. I feel Barack Obama, his wife and the kids should be taken out of Whitehouse tonight. We cannot let this little boy bury a once great country. Barack Obama needs to resign and apologize to all veterans and their families for starters. Then to the millions of lives he has has disrupted on our soil. Then he can take his wife and his kids back to wherever he came from.

Obama is proof-positive of an old adage: "Egotism is the anesthesia that deadens the pain of stupidity!" Obama fostered this mess by figuring that if the administration encouraged multitudes of children to flock across the border, the Republicans would have to pass comprehensive immigration reform. But, it backfired on him and he is clueless on what to do next. So, he is doing the only thing he knows; do some campaign fundraising stops and get in a few rounds of golf before the next scandal hits!

And the ignorance keeps getting more ignorant. Somebody should teach many of you how your gooberment works. When things actually happen, and what is and isn't allowed.
